unnecessary for a few months any talk of military action. the obama administration is very comfortable with tough sanctions on iran and may be an area of some agreement. >> perhaps tougher sanctions because netanyahu's incredibly clear talking with his diagram the three different stages if you will of the uranium enrichment before the metaphorical fuse would be lit and would be complete next spring or next summer. you, fareed, spoke with the man that prime minister netanyahu was very directly targeting, that being the president of iran, mahmoud ahmadinejad. let me just play a little bit of your conversation and then we'll talk on the other side. >> you have indicated that you think that the israeli prime minister's threats toward iran are ones you don't take very serious seriously. but i was wondering how seriously you take the rhetoric of the president of the united states. president obama said at the united nations that he was determined to prevent iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. do you regard that as a bluff? >> translator: you set forth two or three questions here.

. the state filed a lawsuit against the obama administration to get access to the homeland security database which is considered the best information available on citizenship. but this pro skes is just beginning and it's not going well already because i'm talking to county election supervisors today who are upset t names they got last night or the names they're getting include people who have already been removed from the roles last spring. >> why does it matter? 198 names seem to be a small number to have this political fight continue. >> an extremely small number. it's largely because the governor here, rick scott, has made this a very important priority. he has said that a vote by a noncitizen should not die lut the vote of a legitimate voter. this issue polls very well. people when asked about this are adamant. they don't think noncitizens should be voting, but in reality very few noncitizens have ever voted in a florida election from the data from what we can see. >> clearly this has a political impact here as well. the report that the new list essentially was dominated with hi

their criticism of the obama administration regarding foreign policy decisions specifically what happened over in libya and with the ambassador being killed over there. we're seeing here now that they realize it doesn't pay to be outwardly partisan. in that ad we just saw, you heard mr. romney say that president obama cares for the middle class and poor people as i do. of course he does. and of course mitt romney does. anyone that thinks otherwise would be rather jaded. but the fact of the matter is what mitt romney is trying to convey is is that his policies will be better. you might like president obama as a person, carol, but his policies haven't worked for the past four years. >> some republicans think that's not such a good strategy. they think that mitt romney should be just as hard on president obama as he has been in the past and the softening of issues only confuses republican voters, especially core voters. >> it's not his job to be outwardly partisan. he's supposed to be the states man. he's the one supposed to be talking about ideas. allow the super pacs to be do that

afghanistan by the end of 2014. >>> the obama administration now defending its original assessment of the attack that killed four americans in libya on september 11th. they are no longer calling it spontaneous violence sparked by outrage over that anti-islam trailer. but rather a deliberate act of terrorism. senator john mccain told our candy crowley there is much more to this story. >> that doesn't pass the smell test. it was either willful ignorance or abysmal intelligence. to think that people come to spontaneous demonstrations with heavy weapons, mortars and the attack goes on for hours. >> the president called it an act of terror the day after it happened. but when you're the responsible party, when you're the administration, you have a responsibility to act on what you know and what the intelligence community believes. this was -- this is being thoroughly investigated. >> i'm joined by phone from tripoli, libya. welcome. >> hi, carol. >> i'm just wondering, the obama administration says they're going to catch the people who killed the u.s. ambassador and three other americans. what

critical saying the president has thrown israel under the bus recently saying the obama administration has a, quote, chronic disregard for the security of israel, so now in the same day that the president will be having this phone call with benjamin netanyahu, mitt romney's campaign saying he, too, will be speaking with him by phone. this is a chance for mitt romney to again show that he is a friend to israel and that he is committed to making sure that iran does not acquire a nuclear weapon. >> okay. dan lothian at the white house. thanks very much, live for us this morning. it merits repeating that they have had a strained relationship almost from day one. here with me to talk about the diplomatic implications, foreign affairs reporter elise levitt. you have been watching this all week and seen all the accusations. is what dan just reported on enough to smooth the ruffled feathers? is this over? >> these guys don't love each other. they don't love the different styles and i think both of them wanted to provoke each other a little bit. the reason they never mitt, prime

last four years. of course, most of the last four years under the obama administration. so, before we chat, mr. stein, i do need to play this follow-up clip, the vice president, you know, coming back and explaining his comment. this was later in asheville. >> the middle class was buried by the policies of romney and that ryan supported. as bill clinton, all they're suggesting now when asked about this and he's the best, he made the comment, he said, what they're proposing is bush economic policies on steroids. that's what this is. >> on the flip side, ben, you have the mitt romney secretly taped comments, the 47%, what does he do? what does he need to do to overcome this perception, he's this rich guy out to help the rich? >> first of all, we had lots of very rich presidents who have been helpful. fdr was one of the richest men in the country. his family ate off gold plates. john f. kennedy was one of the very richest people in america. he was a very fine president. the fact that lbj was fantastically rich, a fine president. the fact that they're rich doesn't mean they're bad presiden

obama administration, to move any closer to his timetable? he is talking about war with iran potentially being imminent if they're able to get a nuclear weapon. >> this has been going on some time as to how close they really are. i think netanyahu makes the white house and others nervous because of the election. we saw the u.s. boycott iran's speech yesterday. they stated they weren't in the room at the general assembly because of iran's position and because it was the yom kippur holiday. they were in the room for other speeches on the yom kippur holiday. i think this will go right up to election day. the israelly leaders putting some heat on. i think there's no doubt they wouldn't mind if they saw romney get in. >> thank you very much, richard. we'll bring the speeches for you live both from mahmoud abbas as well as netanyahu. >>> it has been two weeks since the attack on the consulate in benghazi. why wasn't the fbi actually visited the skrim scene yet? we'll stake a look at the reasons. >> this is actually spain this week. this was actually before the budget was released.

reaching the point, as the obama administration has said, there is a clear red line. i said what happens? this, again, is the huge question, isn't it, if israel launches some kind of preemptive strike against iran, what should america do? he said, look, that's a matter for his wife. she's the secretary of state. he doesn't want to say anything that would be contradictory to her although he did say i'm in agreement of the way hillary clinton and barack obama have so far dealt with this publicly. the clock is ticking. the great unanswered question, what is israel going to do. if they do do something preemptive, what does america do? i think it's a huge question and i think probably if you're president obama, you're hoping you don't have to deal with this before the election. >> that's for sure. piers morgan, thanks so much. can't wait to see the whole interview later tonight. piers morgan joining us live today. >>> chelsea clinton, the former first daughter, is working with her father at the clinton global initiative and the clinton foundation. she says she's inspired by the work of her pa

u.s. senator obama implied that the bush administration had descriminated against victims of hurricane katrina. cnn reported the event at the time, but the conservative website called "daily caller" is out with the full version of the speech, saying it's an exclusive videotape. we did cover this when it happened. that conservative website is arguing that it is evidence of president obama, then senator obama, whipping up race hatred. for more on this story and how it's -- how did this 5-year-old tape that did get mainstream media coverage end up resurfacing now as some sort of exclusive showing something that we apparently had all never seen before? >> well, ashleigh, it's a political year. this tape plays very well to the republican base. it's being billed on the right as obama's other race speech, so at a time when some suggest a republican challenger doesn't seem to be getting much traction, the one thing we know what works is dredging up anti-obama sentiments to get the base fired up. now, yes, this is clearly old news. it was well covered five years ago. the other thing t
